    Contact Ed Harris 703-501-1400 to let him know which session you plan will attend, to ensure adequate handouts.

    In this refresher participants will review operating characteristics of FRS radio, features and controls and simple operating procedures. New material will explain fundamentals of multi-channel operations used for communicating in complex incidents. In an exercise participants will receive an incident briefing, use a communication plan to determine a “working” frequency and practice using net operating procedures, prowords and phonetics.

    Bring your CERT gear, FRS radio with batteries, flashlight, reflective vest, and suitable clothing for the expected weather.
